5 ounces canned black beans, rinsed and drained

5 ounces kidney beans, rinsed and drained

5 ounces white navy beans, rinsed and drained

1½ cups oats

½ cup all-purpose flour

½ cup mushrooms, finely chopped

½ cup onions, finely chopped

1 carrot, peeled and shredded

¼ cup red bell pepper, finely diced

¼ cup poblano pepper, finely diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon
Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon kosher salt

3 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced

3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning

1 tablespoon olive oil, plus additional, as needed

12 plush rolls, toasted

Mix three bean varieties in a large bowl, reserving a third of the mixture for later use. Place remaining beans and the rest of the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until smooth.

Return mixture to the bowl and add reserved beans to the mixture. Stir to combine and place in a sealed container. Refrigerate overnight.

When you’re ready to cook the veggie burgers, form them into patties. Heat oil in a large skillet set to medium-high. Cook patties in batches, flipping halfway through when crisped (about 3 or 4 minutes per side).

Serve on rolls with condiments, if desired.
